Vietnamese Heritage Night With The San Jose Earthquakes

Print Friendly
Enjoy a night of soccer with the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday, October 22nd and support Hep B Free Santa Clara County, a campaign to make Santa Clara County the first hepatitis-free county in the nation.
The campaign is a grass roots movement made up of a coalition of health care providers, community organizations, elected officials, local government, students, and concerned citizens. The original Hep B Free campaign was launched in San Francisco in 2007 and has now been replicated around the country as a model in hepatitis B prevention.
Hepatitis B is a disease caused by infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Infection with HBV can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, liver failure, and liver cancer. 80% of liver cancer worldwide is caused by HBV infection. Asian Americans tend to be infected at a much higher rate, with 1 in 10 Asians chronically infected with hepatitis B, compared to 1 in 1000 in the general population. Without treatment or monitoring, 1 in 4 of these individuals will die from liver cancer or liver failure.
In California alone, liver cancer is the #1 leading cause of cancer deaths among Laotian American men, the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths among Cambodian and Vietnamese men, the 4th leading cause of cancer deaths among Chinese and Korean men, and the 5th leading cause of deaths among Filipino men.
